Have you ever had one of those days where your house is in total chaos and you’re sitting there watching all the action happen? You think to yourself, “what have I gotten myself into” as you watch your kids fight over the same toy and trip over the building block and books all over the floor.
I like the noise and the chaos and the ever-moving action that happens here day-to-day. It is a beautiful sound to my ears watching my kids interact with each other — it’s what I worked so hard to build so even when they’re fighting I can stop and smile at it.
There are times though — quite a lot — where the chaos gets to a point where I need a break from it. Where the noise has reached an epic level of loud that I wonder what I got myself into. Parenting is awesome, but it’s hard and loud and sometimes we get overwhelmed.
I love to be honest in what parenthood is like — the good, bad, ugly and strange. There is no better compilation over what parenting is really like than the user-generated e-cards from someecards.com. Check out my favorite that I believe really do describe the truth of parenting people may not really say.
